by Alan Bennett
Directed by Simon Holland
In this dark comedy, Connie and Wilfred Craven are a working-class couple who are about to be re-housed. They have a son and daughter, but they seem incapable of describing them accurately. As their lives are studied, later to be recreated in a Heritage Park, their current world is dismantled around their ears, in more than one sense.

"In dealing with the oddness of the play, it says much for the director Simon Holland and the fine playing of the cast that they emerge with great credit from the opaque and occasional inaccesible nature of the play."
